Summer is a time when Earth pours forth Her abundance, so we celebrate the infinite daily abundance that is always given, and ours to receive. We live amongst pure gift – we daily build our lives on the work/creativity of the ancestors and ancient creatures that went before us. And what we do/create each day builds it further for those to come; we too give it away & add to the abundance. As Brian Swimme says: “Every moment of our lives disappears into the ongoing story of the Universe. Our creativity is energising the whole.” That is what is meant in the ceremony when we affirm that we are the Bread of Life. Being the Bread of Life – Food – means being consumed, but it also means being received and enjoyed. We are Creators everyday – our small efforts sustain the world – daily and ultimately. We are constantly consuming the work and creativity of others and we are constantly being consumed. Who are you feeding?
